Bob @ tv2phone.com has pointed me toward his new service, offering live TV streams direct to your MS Smartphone. Just browse to tv2phone.com and click on music, news or whatever and bingo!
Some streams work in the cradle (saving your GPRS charge!) – these are labelled with “Works in Cradle”. I clicked on “Music”, then “The Basement” (Australian Music Video channel) – it seemed to work surprisingly well. Live channels are supplemented with pre-recorded clips and categories include news, music, sports, shopping, and more.. all free.
This has been tested on a CDMA network, and not GPRS – but seems to work fine.
